ACTCOSS has three key requirements of any new development in transport: that it be accessible, affordable and fit for purpose (incorporating east to west travel needs and within neighbourhood travel inside and outside of peak hours as well as mass transit). In this submission ACTCOSS focuses on the need to regulate safety and quality standards and to further consult with people living with disability who face increased reliance upon (with associated cost) taxi-type travel. ACTCOSS argues for the need to enhance transports choices as well as preserving quality and safety for all and makes relevant recommendations to meet these ends.
